    Thumbs up BBP Forum WILL NOT be Closed January 11, 2013

    Hello everyone,

    With online poker virtually dead in this country and no hopes of revival on the horizon, I have refocused my efforts into other aspects of life. This forum will be closing down on January 13, 2013. Thank you very much to everyone who helped create and grow this community. It was definitely a fun ride while it lasted.

    Happy holidays!

    End of an era, This forum at its peak was the best, loved the banter and crack on here and looked forward to coming on each day and seeing the huge scores that some of the beasts had. So many great characters and the site will be sadly missed.

    Massive thanks Scott for all your hard work and letting us be a part of it. Hope everyone is well and just want to wish you all the very best in the future. Special thanks to KevinW for backing me and the weekly lessons, they were a good few months bud (and acesfull to)

    Right I'm off to rail Rounder63 and watch him take down an FTOPS with 84o

    All the best

    I was talkin to vegard today and we both agreed this was a pretty great, cozy forum. Small yet very useful posts, talented players and great people. I really hope to see the day online poker in the US takes a boost again, because im sure someone here will revive the Forum.

    Special thanks to Scott for all his hard work on maintaining a great forum with a friendly environment. Hope to meet you guys sometime in the future, maybe play you guys live and grind you all. You're all free to hit me up on FB GL TO EVERYONE!!!

    I still check the forum every morning, less to see as of late, but this forum is my routine everyday!!!!! Going to be sad to see it go. Scott, thank you for the hard work! You guys have helped me come from a player that SPEWED money to a marginally break even player. That alone is a huge transformation! THANK YOU ALL!!!!
